“Making Waves in Inlandia”
Stories of the Inland Empire Women’s Environmental Movement
Growth and nature collided in the Inland Empire starting in the late 1960s. As home builders scooped up more and more land to build affordable housing, pressures mounted on the local environment and quality of life. These pressures threaten to cause irrevocable damage to open space and parks, biological resources, water resources, transportation resources, cultural and social resources, and air quality as well as increase pollution. “Making Waves’ is the story of seven area women who made a difference in what many thought were inevitable outcomes.
